Can't scale on Kai'sa
February 21, 2019
Arrow ended Sunday's loss to Cloud9 with a 2/2/4 KDA as Kai'sa.
Arrow tried, but couldn't scale into a threat during Optic's loss to Cloud9. The bottom laner was involved in six of ten kills, tying for the second highest assist total on the team. Arrow played ok, but needed to do more in order to carry his side past Cloud9.
Unable to play
January 30, 2019
Arrow was forced to sit out of his team's first game of the season due to Visa issues.
Although Arrow played for OpTic in 2018, he was not quick to res-sign is contract with the team for the 2019 season. After exploring options and looking at other teams, he finally settled on OpTic. Unfortunately for the team, this meant that the organization could not finalize his Visa prior to the first week of the season. As a result, OpTic was forced to use it's Academy ADC in place of Arrow. It is unclear when Arrow's Visa will be finalized which would allow him to rejoin his team on the stage once again.
Falters in loss
August 6, 2018
Arrow finished his team's loss against Clutch Gaming with a 0/1/2 KDA on Ezreal.
Much like the rest of his team's showing, Arrow simply seemed to lay down and die against Clutch Gaming. Playing extremely slow, he was never looking to make proactive plays and was often too slow to react to the enemy team's movements. Simply pushing down his own lane, he struggled to scale up in order to deal any meaningful amount of damage. Though he was able to do a little bit against the enemy team, it simply wasn't enough to bring OpTic into the driver's seat. Only making proactive plays during the late game, it came too late to bring OpTic a chance in the game. As a result, Clutch Gaming found a 42-minute victory.
Consistent play nets victory
July 23, 2018
Arrow earned a 1/0/7 KDA on Jhin during OpTic's victory over TSM.
After falling behind in the early game due to other members on his team giving up kills, Arrow was able to scale nicely to have a positive impact against TSM. Biding his time until he was in a favorable position, he joined his team in the mid game to dominate skirmishes. Hitting the enemy backline, he didn't deal a large amount of damage but was able to prevent the enemy team from reaching his team's main sources of damage. The play was critical to his team's success. Although it wasn't flashy, it bought OpTic time to claim a series of teamfight victories, resulting in a 33-minute victory.
Damage carries in loss
June 25, 2018
Arrow earned a 5/1/6 KDA on Ezreal in OpTic Gaming's loss to FlyQuest on Sunday.
Arrow was up against a Taliyah - Shen combo from FlyQuest that was rough early but was made better with gank help. When it was time to group up for teamfights, Arrow was ready to dish out the damage en route to leading OpTic in damage dealt to champions. While Arrow managed to stay safe in the backline for most of the teamfights, he slipped up once late and it led to FlyQuest going on a Baron power play that is used to finish off the game.
Provided solid backup in win
June 24, 2018
Arrow scored a 3/1/8 KDA on Lucian in OpTic Gaming's win against Echo Fox on Saturday.
Arrow had a relatively quiet laning phase but got plenty of time scale nicely into the late game. While a lot of the attention was on PowerOfEvil's Kai'Sa, Arrow was there as good back up and finished some of the fights that PowerOfEvil died in. In the end, Arrow didn't have many kills but plenty of assists to make up for it, on his way to earning 73 percent kill participation.
Completely lackluster
June 18, 2018
Arrow ended with a 1/2/1 KDA in OpTic's Sunday loss to Cloud9.
Arrow's Xayah failed to accomplish much of anything in this game, falling behind in CS before ending with the lowest kill participation in the game. He also wasn't able to stop Cloud9's map pressure at all despite the waveclear of both himself and PowerOfEvil's Ziggs.
Can't quite carry
January 28, 2018
Arrow went 5/2/2 as OpTic were taken down by TSM on Saturday.
Arrow played a nearly perfect game on Tristana, making the result a shame for him. He participated in seven out of eight OpTic kills, grabbing five for himself, and made only one real mistake when he got caught out at Baron. Even this didn't really cost OpTic anything, and when his team got caught by an engage from Mithy to end the game, there was nothing Arrow could have done about it.
Early advantages don't pay off
January 21, 2018
Arrow completed OpTic Gaming's loss to Team Liquid on Sunday with a 3/2/2 KDA.
Arrow started this game on a high note with picking up a kill on Xmithie in the opening few minutes, but then it was all downhill from there. Akaadian couldn't make much of the early jungle advantage and Liquid started to slow push OpTic around. OpTic will need to get better at punishing early kills if they want to prevent the rest of the league from running away from them in the standings.
Signs on with OpTic Gaming
November 22, 2017
Arrow will join OpTic Gaming, Inven reported on Wednesday.
Given Phoenix1 did not acquire a NA LCS franchise spot, Arrow's foray into free agency wasn't a surprise. However, the 2017 Spring Split MVP likely couldn't have imagined joining an organization with such considerable reach, given OpTic Gaming was only recently announced as a LCS team just a few weeks prior. Despite failing to achieve the recognition of split's past, Arrow's Summer Split performance wasn't anything to scoff at, posting the highest kill percentage of any North American ADC. That's likely a largely indictment on his former team, Phoenix1, then anything else, as the roster limped to an LCS-worst 4-14 record.
Free agent for Season 8
November 21, 2017
Arrow announced on Tuesday that he is a free agent for Season 8.
Arrow was guaranteed to be on another team since Phoenix1 did not earn a franchise spot. Arrow won MVP for the Spring Split this season and consistently been a teamfighting force since his tenure began in the LCS. He will either remain in North America or return to Korea.
Strong performance in series defeat against TSM
August 7, 2017
Arrow earned a series KDA of 8/7/10 in P1's 0-2 defeat against TSM.
Starting things off on Kog'Maw, Arrow was the sole potential for his team to claim victory in Game 1. As the rest of his team swiftly fell behind, he traded kills back, building up a decent amount of items for himself. Although he dealt large amounts of damage in teamfights, he was focused easily as the other carries on his team were not a threat. As a result, he couldn't pick up multiple kills, allowing TSM to snowball their lead and claim a swift 26-minute victory. After the defeat, Arrow opted for a surprise pick in Draven, a comfort pick he is well known for. Showing his skill on the champion, he was able to find a large early game lead, seemingly enough to carry his team. This was not the case as Phoenix 1 struggled to use their lead effectively. This allowed TSM time to mount a comeback, forcing several fights and ultimately closing out the game. As a result, Phoenix 1 was defeated 0-2 in the series.
Dominant Kalista play in P1's comeback
July 31, 2017
Arrow finished with a 17/4/11 KDA in Phoenix1's 2-1 series victory against Counter Logic Gaming on Sunday.
Arrow was on Kalista throughout the series and picked up his play after a 1/3/2 KDA performance in Game 1. He started to win the laning phase easily the rest of the series with expertly using Kalista's Rend reset to win damage trades and eventually securing kills. In teamfights he was nearly untouchable, using Fate's Call to initiate picks or get himself out of trouble. In Game 2, he finished with a 7/0/7 KDA performance and topped it in Game 3 where he went on a eight kill spree. Arrow seems to have picked up his play as Phoenix1 hopes to climb out of last place.
Delivered on Sivir in Game 2
July 22, 2017
Arrow finished with a 7/7/21 KDA in Phoenix1's series loss to Cloud9 on Friday.
Arrow started off the series with a lowly 0/4/5 KDA performance on Jhin in Game 1. He fell behind during the laning phase and never recovered. He did his best to stay in the backline and deal out damage but P1 had very little frontline to protect him. In Game 2 Arrow had a much better performance on Sivir. While the laning phase wasn't much better, Arrow started to turn things around in teamfights in the mid game. While he didn't get many kills, he made up for it with assists. P1 was able to rush in using On The Hunt and run over C9 to even up the series. Arrow tried to repeat his performance on Sivir in Game 3 but it fell short. While P1 put together another solid frontline for Arrow, it struggled to coordinate in teamfights. Arrow finished with a decent 4/1/3 KDA and led P1 in damage dealt to champions.
Another superb Kalista performance in Game 2
July 17, 2017
Arrow finished with a 7/5/16 KDA in Phoenix1's 2-1 series loss to Team Dignitas on Sunday.
In Game 1 Arrow's Kog'Maw struggled to get enough protection in teamfights to make much of an impact. P1's frontline couldn't handle all of the engage options that DIG's team composition had as it got destroyed in fights. Arrow bounced back to have a Player of the Game performance on Kalista in Game 2. He had plenty of Fate's Calls that countered DIG's engages, turning them into massacres. For Game 3, Arrow was put on another slow scaling champion, Twitch. P1 struggled to coordinate its teamfights throughout the mid game as it lost skirmishes and fell behind. Arrow traded deaths for kills and assists in the late teamfights, but the rest of P1 couldn't do much once he fell.
